The photographs that are coming out from the annual meeting show all the former staff people from Siobhan Coady and Roger Grimes. Ball even kept Yvonne Jones' Chief of Staff who is getting a pension and a salary from the same office! Time to move on and get some capable people in there.

At least your "mistakes" aren't costing taxpayers anything...so let's keep you out of office for awhile longer.....until you get everything figured out.

So this guy Macdonald? Danny's bud, he has to wait for muskrat to be sancationed before he can run for the liberals? If that is the case, then is he just waiting to get his ducks in row and get in on this lop sided MRF deal before any conflict of interest and then get in the house to protect their investments? I always wondered by these multi-millionarses wanted to take such a pay cut to get into the government....it is an investment and everyone pays!

As long as Yvonne Jones got her face before the cameras , the liberals will always be a bunch of losers. This woman continues to demonstrates she knows a lot about nothing every time she opens her mouth.

past liberal governments made a complete joke out of our judicial system. they made a mockery of the youth justice act, watering down crime bills with the help of their ndp friends. they wasted over a billion on a useless gun registry. but the big mistake this hug-a-thug bunch made goes back to 1982 when then a liberal prime minister brought in that phoney document called: THE CHARTER OF RIGHTS & FREEDOMS, it gives criminals more rights then their victims.

liberals say they are learning from their mistakes, so are the voters for electing whats left of that hug-a-thug bunch. when are they going to learn and tell us when are they going to re-pay the taxpayer for the money gone missing from the adscam?

Almost a million dollars in debt, and Dwight Ball as their Leader...how could it get any worse?It must have been funny to have the interim federal leader, who is pro muskrat, talking to the interim provincila leader who is anti muskrat having a conversation about the million dollars in debt...LOL Hilarious...

If the party cant afford $32,000.00 a year, less than $3,000.00 a month, how would they be able to look after a provincial budget in the Billions of dollars. If this was anyone else, the loan would have been long recalled if they weren't even paying the interest. John Hogan says that the discussions have been ongoing for 3 years and that their lenders are close to fruition. Again, If this was anyone else, the loan would have been long recalled if they weren't even paying the interest. Another example of there being 2 sets of rules, one for the common John Q. Public and another for the "big and the famous."

I don't think that it was a mistake that cost the Liberals, it was total annihilation cause by the fighting within.

The provincial Liberals lost government 9 years ago and are still in decline. The time to take a good hard look at themselves was many years ago. Too little, too late.

Ball wouldn't trust the Premier to run a lemonade stand when his own party can't pay the interest on their debt which is less than 1,000.000.00 and getting in terest charges of 32,000.00. What a laugh.

Ok let me see, the party faithful are going to keep a secret of how they are going to win the next election for three years. Not likely. The party needs to do a better job in communicating yet they use a footbal analogy, “I’m not going to tell the guys on the other side of the football field, here’s the passing play we have coming up,” he said"", to communicate this message. Last time I looked, there are no football teams in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Liberal party had better do a lot better at communicating to the people with concrete ideas and not just saying "We have a plan...We have a policy", as Mr. Alyward kept saying in the debates of the last election. They plan to be debt free by the next election. How? Again, a lack of a clear plan. But it has been a lack of a clear vision and leadership that has put the party in the position it is in today. Get a leader in place now. By not having a leader in place it looks as though the Liberals are only partly interested in governing. The term Interim Leader is like saying assistant coach, I am here to help but I do not want the responsibility of leading the team. The reason the NDP are polling higher than the Liberals is that they have had the same leader in place for the last seven years and people know who she is and what she stands for. The Liberals have had seven different leaders in one form or another since 2005. Time to get serious about leadership and not wait another full year.

If they knew anything about football they wouldn't be quite as hapless as they are. For one thing they would know that the other team probably has a good idea about the plays that they have available in any situation. The game is not about surprising the other team, it is about execution and recognizing mistakes. Surprise is often just an instance of exploiting a mistake.

The Liberal Party need to add one more area to their renewal strategy...COMMON SENSE. The rise in the stock of the liberal party in the province has absolutely NOTHING to do with their performance and EVERYTHING to do with the performance of the current PC Government. Absolutely nothing has changed within the Liberal Party since the Party Executive decided they wanted Roger Grimes as their leader instead of John Efford. I'm not saying that John was the man for the job but he was clearly the man that the PEOPLE wanted at the time and most have not and will not forget what went on at the convention. Until the Liberal Party realize and address this situation, they'll be sitting on the sidelines instead of calling the next passing play!!! Also, recycling old defeated politicians into your lineup is NOT renewal!!!

Before the liberal party forms government in nl they have to make major changes I dont think thats possible with the current leader and his mhas I would never vote for them if the situation is status quo
